Serious tracking issues and bad framerate in Medium using Oculus Quest 2 + Link Cable




I'm getting some serious tracking issues when using Medium and Quest 2 + Link Cable connected to my workstation. The entire scene in Medium feels like it jiggles rapidly (translation and rotation) by a few centimeters when I move, thus making working in Medium utterly nausea-inducing.


I've been using Oculus Medium (on this particular workstation) for almost two years now, first using it when the Rift S came out in March 2019. If I plug in my Rift S, the tracking in Medium works fine. Which leads me to think that the Quest 2 or Link Cable are causing the problem.


I am using a third party USB cable (Modal 10 foot USB-C / USB-A) as my Link Cable. Could this be the cause?

Are the tracking issues in Medium a known issue when using the Oculus Quest 2 + Link Cable?



what are your computer specs?

I use a third party usb c and i don't have any issues.

Here are my specs:


Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i9-9820X CPU @ 3.30GHz 3.31 GHz

GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 (8 GB VRAM)

NVIDIA Diver Version: 456.71

Motherboard: Asus Prime X299-A
RAM: 64.0 GB (63.7 GB usable)
OS: Windows 10 Pro

System Type: x64-based PC

Primary Drive: Samsung SSD 980 Pro 1TB

Power Supply: Not entirely sure but I think it's 850W


The tracking issue is only apparent in Medium and when using the Oculus Quest 2 + Link Cable. Other apps seem to work fine with the same device setup.


I've tried plugging the Link Cable into a few different USB ports, ie. USB 3.2 Gen 1 and Gen 2 as seen on my motherboard here, but it makes no difference.
